While planning our wedding my fiancee and I were looking for a videographer and met Alex. During our first meeting, he won our hearts by asking about the smallest details and all our wishes and by giving some pieces of advice that were really useful later on at the ceremony. He was certainly a pro. We had met ten others and hired him.
Our wedding was everything we dreamed of.
Day after day we ran to the mailbox for the video. It finally showed up two months longer than was promised. Trust me, that really upset us. I called him to express our disappointment and he apologized profusely. He told me he spends his weekends shooting, his days looking for new business, and late nights editing. He tearfully explained that his wife and daughter complained they never saw him, he was always working.
We made amends and I hung up the phone. Then a lightbulb went off and I had an idea. I wondered how many wedding videographers shared his dilemma?
In September 2018 I launched Bride&Groom.video. My mission is to save wedding videographers the most valuable asset – their time. We edit wedding videos following the filmmaker’s style, thoughtfully picking the music and putting together shots, to build a story that captures the pathos of the event. You can feel the love in the room. The end results are the tears of happiness, joy, and great memories from those who watch them.
By the wedding season of 2019 we formed a real dream team – our chief editor Mariia with 10 years of editing career and big movies experience. Client manager Olga, the most attentive and responsible person I’ve ever met. Editors Petro, Alexander and Anastasia, who are ready to work days and nights on the film until they are proud of the result. And me, responsible for process organization.
Today we are a team of 71 and we continue growing. Mariia, Petro, Alexander, Anastasiia, Nikita, and Andrew are leading editing teams, each focusing on their work tools – Adobe Premiere, Final Cut or Davinci Resolve.
